Book Description

MuseScore is a free and Libre music notation program, suitable for everyone from music students to professionals. In recent years, MuseScore has established itself as one of the leading score-writers for those looking to take the quality of their sheet music to the next level. From large-scale orchestral works to short piano/vocal songs, MuseScore makes the process easy so you can focus on the music instead of the technology.

Instant MuseScore takes readers through the process of notating music in a simple and straightforward manner. Starting with the basics and adding tips to our toolbox as we go, we learn to utilize the most important features of MuseScore. Instant MuseScore will help you become familiar with the tools that you will need to make great music whether or not you have used music notation software before.

This book will introduce you to the key features of MuseScore, and shows you how to typeset very complicated scores while steering clear of some common trouble spots.
You will start by understanding the most notable features that will help you to enter music into MuseScore. Using these as a base, we will explore additional techniques necessary for more complex projects, and learn how to give your score a professional touch. Towards the end of the book, you will be confident enough to create quality sheet music and natural-looking scores with an unbeatable software package.
